Violincello by lyndemc

Violincello

The name 'cello' is derived from the ending of the Italian 'violoncello', which means "little violone". Violone was the large-sized member of the viol family, a family of instruments that went out of fashion in the 17th century in favor of the louder violin family In modern symphony orchestras, the cello is the second largest stringed instrument (the double bass is the largest). By the turn of the 20th century it had become common to shorten the name to 'cello, with the apostrophe indicating the missing stem. It is now customary to use "cello" without apostrophe as the full designation. (Paraphrased from wikipedia. While I did know the original name was 'violoncello', I've just learned the etymology.)

Beautiful!

Another question ( promise last one!) if you play 'cello can you transfer the finger placement for notes to Double Bass?? Or is that like assuming a guitarist could play violin??

I've loved your project and the seemingly simplicity of your photos belies careful composition and care of your beautiful subject.
